Nifong/Mangum Hoax — August 10, 2007

John in Carolina:
N&O & That Bathroom -- Regular visitors know I’ve asked news organizations and individual journalists to provide us news reports with pictures or videotapes of the bathroom that Crystal Mangum claimed was the place where she struggled to fight off three Duke lacrosse players who brutally beat, strangled and gang-raped her for thirty minutes. I’ve explained here why it’s important that happen....

John in Carolina:
Duke's numbers & alums -- Below is a letter which appeared today in the Durham Herald Sun under the lead, Check Duke’s numbers. It’s followed by a double star line after which I offer some commentary...

Rickards letter adds very important information to the Herald Sun’s story. It also raises serious issues which the University and Duke Endowment need to address.

Anyone using alumni annual giving as an indicator of satisfaction or dissatisfaction with President Brodhead and Board of Trustees Chair Robert Steel’s management of the University’s response to the obvious lies Crystal Mangum told and the terrible events that have followed them, should know this: Duke has carefully fed alums bafflegarb while telling them little or nothing about important matters which don’t reflect well on Brodhead and his administration...
Michael Gaynor, WebCommentary.com:
Duke Case: Truth versus Fiction -- In my view, the interests of justice do not call for prosecuting anyone in connection with the taking of the money--for larceny, receiving stolen goods or possessing stolen goods--but they do call for the truth and more than a pass for false accuser Crystal Gail Mangum...
KC Johnson:
Week in Review -- An extraordinary recent op-ed from The Stanford Daily reflects the high case-related performance from the college media. Christopher Anderson, a graduate student in electrical engineering, noted that the lessons from events at Duke particularly resonate at his institution...

Angela Davis also viewed the case through the prism of prosecutorial abuse—but suggested a disturbing lack of knowledge about events in Durham....

investigators at the Liestoppers forum have discovered that SANE nurse Tara Levicy has sold her house in Durham, and made inactive her North Carolina nurse’s license...

The author of the Group of 88 statement, Wahneema Lubiano, has posted the newest version of her CV on her Duke website.
John in Carolina:
The Chronicle & “off the record” -- Readers note: On August 5 I posted To The Chronicle’s New Editor . The post is republished below.

In the post I asked questions of The Chronicle’s new editor, David Graham.

Graham’s response, which he labeled “off the record,” follows the post.

Since I’d never had any contact with Graham prior to our exchange, I sent him an email explaining why his “off the record” without prior discussion and agreement between us was problematic...
